developing agriculture and agribusiness
i-genius member Iqbal Hossain Shimul from Bangladesh has opened up a 10 day online public comments survey via Facebook 21-31 January 2011. The survery focuses on whether urban agriculture planning or rural agriculture planning is best for a country. After 3 days, the feedback generated clearly shows most are of the opinion that both are equally important, but rural agriculture planning is most important because of the space afforded. This is an important dialogue at a time in our globally collected lives where we are all looking for information on how to save money, but also live sustainable lives.
Iqbal is the founder and executive director of the FACE Trust (Farmers Advancement & Cultivating Effort). FACE’s mission is to help build competence of individuals and organisations of the Bangladesh region in organic agriculture and thereby contribute to build ecologically, economically and socially sustainable agriculture and agribusiness. The mission of FACE is vitally important, especially in Bangladesh, where 70% of the population depend on agriculture.
So, if you’re interested in agriculture and/or a practioner – then why not leave your comments.
